Vesta is 100% superfine organic merino (NOT superwash!).
This yarn is organic, but because not all of my dye stuffs are I do not list it as such. However, because the fiber is organic you can be sure that the sheep this wool comes from were raised under all the rules and regulations of organic farming and shepherding, which include fair trade practices and environmental protections from raising the sheep through yarn processing. With the organic label, consumers can be assured that the wool has been processed according to organic guidelines for scouring agents, combing, spinning, and finishing and agents, and waste disposal. It is IMO / GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) certified. My dyestuffs are standard chemical dyes, with environmentally-friendly citric acid and vinegar as the mordant / assist.
210g / approximately 300 yards, Gauge: 10-16 stitches over 4 inches (on US 9-11 needles).
This yarn is is amazingly soft and cushiony. It's wonderful for heavier-weight sweaters, cowls, scarves, hats and mittens and works wonderfully in garter, stockinette, cables and other stitchwork
Vesta is the virgin goddess of the hearth, home, and family in Roman religion.Vesta's presence is symbolized by the sacred fire that burned at her hearth and temples. Her closest Greek equivalent is Hestia.
